1. Construction times

Kager construction technology leverages the benefits of prefabrication to ensure extremely short construction times: from the ground floor slab to delivery to the customer in just 4-5 months. In contrast, a traditional house requires over 18 months of work, often compounded by difficulties in providing the client with definitive deadlines.

2. Certain costs

Kager wooden houses come with a procurement contract that includes a cost guarantee, ensuring that you won’t encounter any unpleasant surprises along the way. Traditional constructions often have quotes that can fluctuate during construction due to variations and unforeseen events.

3. Simplicity of procedures

With Kager, there is a single point of contact: our team coordinates all the figures involved in the process, maximizing simplification. In traditional constructions, it is common for the customer to interact with multiple specialists in individual areas of activity.

4. Customization

The flexibility of Kager construction technology, which is completely tailor-made, allows for no constraints during the design phase. Thanks to the lightness of wood, it is also possible to build elevations or extensions of existing structures. Traditional houses often face constraints during construction, and in many cases, interventions to raise or expand existing structures are not possible due to the high weight of the structure.

5. Living comfort

A Kager wooden house guarantees high well-being. The temperature inside the house does not fluctuate significantly with changes in the outside temperature (variation less than 1°C during a winter night). In summer, it remains cool even without air conditioning, thanks to high thermal insulation and low humidity.

Thus, there is no risk of mold in indoor environments. Traditional houses often have high humidity, thermal bridges, mold, and internal temperature fluctuations that necessitate air conditioning, especially in attics.

6. Security

A Kager home is fire-resistant. The external materials and internal sections of the walls allow a slow advance of the combustion front, ensuring the structure’s resistance for many hours even in the event of serious fires.

Traditional construction homes often use metal elements to ensure structural integrity. However, these materials are negatively affected by the high temperatures that can develop during a fire, risking structural failure.

7. Consumption

A 100 m² Kager house in energy class A4 has an extremely low annual heating cost, averaging €318 with methane gas, €217 with pellets, and €285 with a heat pump. Heating a traditional house in energy class C (70% of houses in Europe) of 100 m² costs on average up to four times as much: €1,090 with methane gas, €870 with pellets, and €1,200 with a heat pump.

8. Maintenance

Extraordinary maintenance of Kager wooden houses is simplified by the structure of the walls, optimized to facilitate interventions on the electrical and plumbing systems. Ordinary maintenance is comparable to that of traditional houses. The extraordinary maintenance of concrete and brick houses is demanding; even simple interventions often require long times and high costs.

9. Warranty

The great durability of Kager wooden houses is confirmed by a 30-year guarantee on all structural parts. This is possible thanks to the correct management of humidity and the presence of thermal breaks. Traditional houses generally only offer the ten-year guarantee for serious defects as provided for by the Civil Code.

10. Investment

The market value of a Kager wooden house today is more than 10% higher than that of a similar traditional house, thanks to its durability and high energy efficiency. Traditional houses that are not energy efficient depreciate over time. Furthermore, the thickness of the thermal insulation in traditional walls removes up to 7% of the internal walkable surface compared to a Kager house.
